Art Journal Dabbles

I have been having a bit of a try with with Art journaling as I am involved in a circle swap.  I am totally loving the experience.  I am not very clever at it but it is still alot of fun and if you get a chance to be involved in a swap I say go for it :)

Here are a few of my pages I have done so far.....

Quite a few of the journals have a quote theme which has been loads of fun.  My latest one is the top one, boy was that hat hard to draw!  I have forgotten to take photos of quite a few which is a bit sad :(  At least I remembered these ones though so that is all good.

Thanks  for dropping by - I would love to know which on is your favourite so leave me a comment.

Project Life Week 3

I had forgotten to post my week 3 spread, which is kind of unbelievable as it is my favourite so far.....

Lots of little things happened, plus it was the school holidays so of course the kids were here keeping me out of trouble ;)

Here are a few close ups....

I have used my new BH coral kit in a few places on this spread - I am pretty sure it is my fav kit so far, the colours are perfect for boys and girls which is great in our house.

And something I have done this week is clean up the desk in the office, it is part of my new organising kick - so far I have done our bedroom....

and the office....

and I am part way through the boys room - that is where I snaffled the shelf at the back of the desk from, it used to be in my room when I was a kid :)  And now I have it back.    Still alot of rooms to go but it is a good start.  And I am so happy with how these 2 rooms look I am really looking forward to getting the house finished.  PLUS I have Andrew doing his mancave and I have been selling the unwanted stuff on the Dannevirke sell page on Facebook and making some birthday money YAY.

A Pretty Special Layout

As a child, and an adult, I was fortunate to have really fantastic parents :)  When I was born they were a little older than the norm back then.  Unfortunately this meant that all my grandparents apart from my Nana had already passed away.  We lived a relatively long way from my Nana so I didn't see her  much, maybe once a year if that. Anyway recently I posted a photo on facebook of some of my cousin and myself at Nana's 80th, it kind of snowballed and there were lots of cousins I hadn't seen since that night being tagged in it.  This led to a facebook group being started for the family and lots of awesome photos being posted, which I have now saved.  One of the photos was a photo of my Pop, who is my mums Dad.
I decided to make a layout with it, it is not a heritage layout and I have used fairly modern papers but I think they match the photo.  I have also put some hidden journalling behind the photo that is personal to me.

I am stoked with how it has turned out  and again - I love the photo so much.
Supplies are.....
Studio Calico papers
Amy Tangerine paper
Scraptastic Stamp
Zing embossing powder
Distress Ink
Foam applicator
Scotch Adhesive Gun
Criicut Personal cutter
Opposites Attract Cricut Cartridge

Some February Project Life Spreads

Ok so I know that officially you are only supposed to call it project life if you are using all Becky Higgins stuff - well I don't care.  And since Harvey Norman actually bagged the name for their photo memory line and I have used their cards as well as BH ones I am going to call it project life!  And here are 2 spreads for your enjoyment....

Thanks loads for stopping by - have a great day :)
